11:12pm
will. >> have you ever had problems here? >> those answers are not true. as you're about to see, when it comes to health code violations in santa clara county, diners are left in the dark. >> how important is it that the public is aware of what's happening at restaurants? it is very important. >> meet heather. she is in charge of the county's restaurant inspections. since there is no grading system, the only way to know if a restaurant has been shut down and why is to schedule an appointment to view the records. but state law does require all restaurants keep a copy of the most recent inspections on hand. if you asked to see it, they have to show it to you. so we tested the system. to see who was willing. >> we want to look at your latest inspection report. >> i can't. i can't bring you the document. >> he is the manager of this denny's in sunnyvale. we have different procedures. >> how are we supposed to know

11:14pm
of the ten restaurants we visited, only one showed us the report. >> oh, great. let's check it out. >> is this acceptable? >> it is not acceptable. i am disappointed that the restaurants are not providing with you truthful information. or any member of the public. what i do want to emphasize is that the public can get this information in other ways. >> like going to the county's website. but even if you go to the trouble to look it up, the information is vague. while it shows categories of violations, it doesn't give any details of what inspectors found. take these two restaurants. both cited for vermin. one major, one minor. what does that mean? we pull the files. the minor violation was for fresh rodent droppings and one rat caught. major was for a dead fly in the whiskey. these two restaurants show enforcement action taken. but why? files show one was closed for a
11:15pm
fire. the other, infested with cockroaches. this report on a fast food chain san jose just says enforcement action. >> i would have to look at the file and look at this a little more closely. this is the first time i've seen this. >> how are customers supposed to know what this means if you don't know what it means. >> i'm looking at this right now for the first time. i would want to take a look at this a little more closely and review it before i can respond to this particular case. >> do you see why i'm having trouble looking at this, how someone at home could have trouble understanding what that means? >> yes. i agree that there are improvements that can be made in this system. >> i think santa clara county could do more to help people understand what that information means that. >> dr. phillip leslie is a professor at ucla's business school. he conducted this study in los angeles after the city started
11:16pm
its letter graying system. he found foodborne illnesses dropped almost 30% in three years. he said having information in the window incentivizes restaurants to stay clean and allow diners to make an educated choice of where to eat without having to ask. >> even if all restaurants did have that information on hand at the restaurant itself, people are still not going to ask for it. that's an awkward moment. you don't want to start out that way. >> even if you do. >> you don't trust people. >> in santa clara county, sometimes the answer is hard to swallow. >> that or go home and cook yourself. >> we reached out to manage many at every restaurant you saw in the report. most were unaware of the law. all told us they will educate their employees. denies said it is reminding each of its restaurants in california. and they said they've been revamping the program for about
11:17pm
aier so no changes yet. she added inspectors will be reminding restaurants of the law. >> an eye opening report. thank you. if you have a tip to her or anyone else, give us a call or send us an e-mail directly to the unit. tomorrow night the investigative unit will be back. two patients received the same treatment but they get two very different bills. for the first time, steven compared the prices. we reveal why the costs you see are rarely what you pay. that's tomorrow night right here at 11:00. let's bring in our chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. today was supposed to be the 49ers' victory parade had they won the super bowl. i just want to say that. the rain stayed away. >> you see mother nature didn't agree. it was cloudy today. >> there you go. if we would have won, we would have managed some sunshine. >> let's get a look.

11:19pm
and oregon. we'll get the rainfall. we'll take it. it won't be as much as we would like for this time of year. also another reinforcing shot of cold air as we head throughout friday and saturday. this will give us the coldest weather we have seen in a week. as for tonight and into tomorrow, it will be cool. cloud cover against the coastline. lower 50s there. if you're in the coast and headed out here to the east bay or the south bay, you will need the same clothes that you needed at the coast. we won't see a huge temperature forecast. as far as the time line in the rain, we'll start with the showers at 7:00 a.m. thursday. then as we head throughout 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, the rain starts to push to the santa clara county. it is light to moderate rainfall. not expected to be too heavy. for thursday morning, you will keep that with you. we'll keep the chance of showers. not looking at widespread coverage of rainfall but we
11:20pm
can't miss the hit or mit activity. we're be talking feet, only inches across the summit. maybe not too bad for alpine meadows, squaw valley. for tomorrow, 36 in santa rosa. 37 in napa. how about your daytime highs? you need jacket. mid to upper 50s. a little winter and it will feel like the low 50s. once again as we mentioned, we're getting that rain in here throughout thursday and we'll keep a chance of showers in the forecast for friday as well. look at that. friday, morning temperatures in the 20s to about 30 degrees for the interior valleys. so i don't know. if you have an avocado tree, maybe some oranges, you might want to think about it. >> avocados aren't ripe yet? >> i still have the avocado tree.

11:22pm
more evidence now of the silicon valley job mark is heating up.
11:23pm
>> the index with its report on job growth showed 92,000 new jobs were added in the bay area last year. the majority were in santa clara and san mateo counties. while high-tech jobs were growing across silicon valley and san francisco, construction is now one of the fastest growing industries in the region. it could get cheaper for some people to ride vta. a few grant might lower fares for low income riders in santa clara county. people acting in community together, or pact, raised the issues. they said low income people pay more for public transportation than people in other surrounding counties. the two-year study begins in july. when we return with henry wofford.
